    but the truth is that demand is still low enough there that hydropower dominates the electricity scene.   Which actually works really well with wind.  Venezuela gets 80%+ of its power from hydro, but during droughts it is forced to fire up gas fired plants. Adding wind to the mix means that you can impound more water.  There's a huge market in Latin America, but it just hasn't been tapped.
